When to Change 1990 Hyundai Excel Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1990 Hyundai Excel? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Your 1990 Excel’s oil should be changed according to Hyundai’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your Excel may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice excess vehicle exhaust.

In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Hyundai Excel. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

1990 Hyundai Excel Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Hyundai Excel engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Hyundai Excel engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Hyundai Excel oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Hyundai Excel exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
